Horse Cave Trio

 

continued

DeVore is lucky to perform with equally veteran musicians, Lou Simon on guitar and Rob Haze on drums. Simon, who played with Jimmie Bones (now of Kid Rock fame), knows what to do with a solo line, baiting listeners with repetitive riffs and reeling them in with a high-pitched climax. Haze seems to know he's playing to us dancers. As my husband says, "He isn't afraid to hit something once in a while." But he has volume control too.

The repertoire isn't all covers. DeVore's original tunes, like "Tremble" and "Young, Sweet, and Fine," are so much in the style of his heroes, I had to check to make sure they weren't forgotten 1950s hits.

There's nothing really groundbreaking about Horse Cave Trio. It's simply three confident musicians who know how to please by playing the music they love most. The licks are comfortably familiar, the beat is just what you expect, and the resolution is sweetly satisfying. It's only rock 'n' roll. But I like it.
